Going above and beyond

Last week I got an eMail from an Officer James Duffy, who is with the Moreno Valley, CA Police Department. He had a Fuso bike he believed to be stolen, and was trying to find its rightful owner. The bike is pictured above.

He told the story of how a local citizen had spotted someone acting suspiciously. It was late Saturday night and this person was riding a bike, and pushing the Fuso alongside. This Good Samaritan decided to call it in to the police, and followed the suspicious person in his car.

When the suspect realized he was being followed, he dropped the bike in front of someone’s house and took off. The driver, still on the phone with the police, waited for an officer to arrive. Officer James Duffy then took possession of the bike, and went to the trouble of Googling my name as the builder of the bike to see if I had records of the owner.

He told me, and I quote: “I want to get this back in the hands of whomever it belongs to, because it's obviously in good condition, and probably quite loved.” I am impressed. Here is an officer going way above and beyond his duties as a Police Officer.

Unfortunately, the bike was not listed on my Registry. The Moreno Valley PD. have a Facebook page where they posted pictures of the bike. People I know who work in bike stores tell me that people who have their bike stolen, rarely report it to their local police. I can’t think why? In this case had the owner done so, he would have his bike back by now.

If you live in the Moreno Valley area, please help spread this information. This story needs to have a happy ending.

Whoever had that bike kept it in wonderful shape. I hope the rightful owner gets it back - good work by Officer Duffy and Dave!
